    What to do with fish caught in USA heading into canada-gctid671574

    Just caught a bunch of salmon in San jauns. Heading to canada. What is the laws regarding that?.

    Sorry I should have thought more ahead on that.

    What will happen or what to do? I have no plan to hide them. If it's a problem I will give them away or throw them back.

    Kind of in a hurry.

    You can get a fishing license on line before getting to Canada

    Make sure you meet CA catch regs

        They're just treated as a "landed catch" . If you step foot on US soil, and record your catch on a US license you're good to go. It's just meat at that point. I think you can bring like 20KG per person in for consumption. Your US license serves as the country of origin proof. Don't over think it. They're Canadians and won't give you any hassles unless you try to BS them. If you fish in Canada, I believe they will count against your possession limits, so be sure you don't end up with too many coolers of fish parts aboard.

          I don't think they care about fish, they cant tax it.

          Its booze they care about.

          But if you're worried, I'll hold it for you. Might use some of it for bait though, going crabbing this weekend.

            As long as you followed Washington's fishing regs and filled out your catch card correctly, you're fine. Just don't stop to fish in Canadian waters on your way back - that is not allowed.

              That's where it might get sticky would be IF he wanted to fish in Canada, keeping his Washington catch below the possession limits. Same would apply here if a Canadian fisherman headed down here. He'd have to abide by WA rules and have a single possession limit in addition to he daily catch limit.

              No need to over think it, just declare it and have your Washington licenses / catch cards available. Should be simple. Folks coming back from BC carry fish all the time.
